Emerald Ash Borer Treatments

We have been helping Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Quad Cities, Waterloo, and Des Moines communities plan for and respond to Emerald Ash Borer.

Adult EAB beetles live on the outside of the tree and feed on the leaves during the summer months. The larvae, which look similar to white grubs, feed on the living material under the bark of ash trees. Ultimately, trees are killed by the tunnels created by the EAB larvae, which disrupts the tree’s vascular flow.

The key is treating ash trees before they become infested with Emerald Ash Borer beetles.

Benefits of hiring a professional:

Our tree, shrub, and lawn care specialists have almost 20 years of experience in detecting, preventing, and treating trees for diseases and insects, such as EAB.

We can treat ash trees in the spring, once the tree begins to bud and continue treating affected trees every 2 years once the insects have reached your locale.

We use a proven and effective product called Tree-Age, an insecticide developed by Aborjet. It is applied by drilling small holes in the trunk of the tree and injecting the insecticide into the vascular system.

The starting price for EAB Treatments is: $100 per tree
